This year, Pilchuck Glass School commissioned artist Heather Sutherland to design and create art pieces showcased on the Benefactor tables. A Virginia native, Heather Sutherland recently graduated from the University of Wisconsin with an MFA in Glass. Her body of work combines glass and various materials and language to depict concepts of gender, commodity, luxury, and labor. For her most recent exhibition, she collaborated with her partner Tyler Gordon at the Chrysler Museum Glass Studio to perform Savage Beauty. This performance combined a plethora of voices and methods of expression to deconstruct ideas about gender and beauty. She has worked with institutions including Chrysler Museum Glass Studio, Tidewater Community College, Pilchuck Glass School, among others, and taught a few summer courses at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. In 2018, she was selected as a fellow for the Creative Glass Center of America with WheatonArts. Sutherland has a deep-rooted belief in the importance of community and being able to give back the opportunities granted to her, and for that reason, was pleased to be able to contribute meaningfully to Pilchuck’s 2018 Auction and Gala. With gratitude, Sutherland extends a thank you to all of the artists who participated in the creation of these pieces. HSUTHERLAND.COM
